Apple Nut Coffee Cake submitted by Karen Johnson
This recipe is from The Inn On Golden Pond Bed and Breakfast in Holderness, New Hampshire. Aaron's parents met us there in May 2001 for a relaxing and beautiful Spring weekend on Squam Lake. We actually didn't have this there, but I found it and look forward to trying it... (It's incredible!!!)

In a mixing bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla extract; beat well.

Sift together 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with the sour cream.

Fold in the chopped apple and spread the batter into a greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan.

In a separate bowl combine the nuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, and 2 Tablespoons flour. Mix well and sprinkle over batter.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes.
